Welcome to our Blue Christmas worship, made just for those who may want to recognize the special meaning of Christmas, but who don't feel all that jolly.
In this short worship, we'll be singing some contemplative Christmas songs, read the Christmas scripture from Luke 2:1-20, light our four Advent candles and the Christ candle, hear a short Christmas message from Rev. Richard Propes, and the go out singing Silent Night with candlelight photos.
If you have advent candles and would like to light them along with us, you will need get them ready, and light them as we light the ones you will see on the screen. May God bless you this Christmas, and thank you so much for joining us!
